PROJECT TITLE :
Performance/Power Space Exploration for Binary64 Division Units
The digit-recurrence division algorithm is employed in several high-performance processors as a result of it provides smart tradeoffs in terms of latency, space and power dissipation. In this work we develop a minimally redundant radix-eight divider for binary64 (double-precision) aiming at getting better energy efficiency in the performance-per-watt house. The results show that the radix-eight divider, when put next to radix-four and radix-sixteen units, requires less energy to complete a division for prime clock rates.
